We talked a bit about price range, and I suspect are likely to imagine a guitar that falls outside the price range of many.
At the risk of being tasteless, I thought a survey of what price range is the TOP of your comfort zone would be instructive.
We can still imagine the ideal, and if needed think about compromises from there.
I'm just setting up $500 bands - I'd pick $3000-$3500 as my personal cap, though I would be very happy if we came up with something at $2500.
I shall try to set it up as a blind poll.
